The queen of pop announced she is visiting 21 cities, internationally, on her tour; and for the first time Tulsa is one of them.

To kick off the occasion, the BOK Center gave News On 6 an exclusive backstage tour to show us Madonna’s digs while she's in town.

Only a lucky few get to go backstage at the BOK Center, and my tour with Marketing Director, Meghan Doyle started at the very back where acts load in their equipment.

Allison: "So on a show day, is this space pretty busy?"
Meghan: "This space is crazy. You don't want to come down here unless you have a purpose or you're going to get run over by somebody."

Doyle said Katy Perry's set is the biggest she's seen, but the BOK knows the ‘Material Girl’ will pull out all the stops.

Next year, Madonna performs at the BOK Center, hitting the stage in Oklahoma for the first time.

And before she walks out to the roaring crowd, she’ll get ready backstage, with some new graffiti art to show off.

Allison: "So all the artists can get a little taste of Tulsa."
Meghan: "Yes, as you can see, it says, 'Living on Tulsa Time."
Allison: "I love that!"

Across the hall is the crew lounge, where band members get ready.

Inside there are setlists from famous former acts, like Garth Brooks and Dave Matthews Band - not to mention posters signed by Taylor Swift and Bruce Springsteen.

Allison: "Wow, just this alone is so cool to see."

Even cooler is the dressing room hundreds of stars have used, now set for Madonna who will be performing January 14th.

Tickets go on sale this Monday at 10 a.m.
